WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEW: Marvel’s “GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2”

Hello there ladies and gentelnerds! Long time no see. I gots lots of catching up to do seeing as to that I’ve been pretty ghost.. So why dont we start with a brand new edition of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!” todays movie?.. 

“GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol 2”

THE STORY: Its been a few months since the first film and the gang are Guardians for Hire. After a job for an alien race known as The Sovereign and their leader Ayiasha.

goes sideways, The team find themselves on the run. With a little help from the Mysterious EGO, claiming to be Star Lords father. The team discovers just what it actually means to be Family! And that its not only blood that can bind people together.

The story in itself, honestly? Isn’t the strongest thing about the movie. Its what happens within the story that propels everything forward. Yondu’s story had much more going on, yet was not the main focus. The Father-Son story between Ego and Peter was.. I dont want to say forced, but it was rushed at some points and it wasn’t very strong. Kurt and Chris were excellent and did a great job with what they were given. It just wasn’t the strongest part of the film. The backbone and heart of the movie was the characters. You can tell it was the characters that James Gunn cared for and has a tremendous amount of respect for. So the main plot suffered for that fact just a bit.

THE CAST:

Fantastic! Wonderful! A true treat. Everyone was on point. Batista was a delight. They gave him so much more to work with and he ran with it. Micheal Rooker’s Yondu 

has become probably my favorite character of the film, only second to of course..

BABY GROOT! My god he was so damn adorable. He stole my heart and every scene he appeared in. 

Sylvester Stallone’s cameo (possible spoiler alert!) as… 

Starhawk, was, surprisingly delightful. He could have easily mailed in a performance.. But he didn’t. He acted. He put his heart into it, and i really appreciate it! I would love to see him continue apperaing in the Cosmic MCU. 

Kurt Russel’s EGO

 was really cool. He played the role as true to character as they could make him. I really cant go too much further in to Ego without spoiling anything. But, Kurt was great. 

Ayiasha of The Sovereign.. 

Too much to say that would border on being a spoiler. But she was very interesting. And i wonder if we will ever see her again. I would be interested in her return.

THE POSITIVES:

The Cast. Baby Groot. Yondu. The Cameos. Oh god! That Stan Lee cameo was fucking epic! I honestly can’t go in to it here.. But oh yeah… I will be digging deep in to that scene. The comedy was top tier. Dave Batista’s Drax was a comedic highlight. The deep cosmic cuts. The 5 or 4 after credits scenes were the best.

THE NEGATIVES: A surprisingly weak plot. The 2nd and 3rd acts was poorly rushed. The soundtrack, Awesome Mix Vol.2 isnt as strong (at least for me) as Vol.1. Non of the tracks stuck with me as much as the first ones did. But that could just be me. The movie would have benefited more from a longer run time.

OVERALL: Another Marvel Studios Masterwork. I cant say its better then the first film, but it can stand shoulder to shoulder with the first film. Its great. In comparison with other Marvel sequels, IE: Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3 and Avengers 2. Its better then all of those. Its a strong sequel. Not as strong as Winter Soldier, but its a great sequel. A Must See for everyone!! 

I score “GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2” 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟💫 8 and 1/2 stars. 

What did you folks think of GOTG2? Hit me up! Comment below, leave a like and a follow. Thx for reading folks.

Until next time.. Peace Out!

in case you missed it, or haven’t seen it yet.. Here you go,

Gladiator Hulk looks straight out of the comics! (side note: The cgi doesnt look 100%. Could just be me.. It looks 85-90%. But this is the first teaser and the movie doesnt come out for another, 6-7 Months. Plenty of time to clean it up)

MY THOUGHTS ON.. “The VENOM and BLACK CAT/SILVER SABLE Films In The Works At SONY PICTURES”

Earlier this past week Sony Pictures announced plans for a VENOM stand alone film, set to hit theaters sometime in 2018. And a possible BLACK CAT & SILVER SABLE team up film. Production and release date TBD. 

I was busy with a fan fiction (The Killing Joke:Aftermath. For those of you curious) So i didn’t have time to touch on this bit of news.. But Now I Do..

Lets start with VENOM. 

According to reports SONY has locked down the release date for October 5th, 2018 for the stand alone feature. Reports further stateing that the film will be a rated R outing, strictly seperate from the Spider-man Marvel/Sony MCU. Meaning the plan is for the movie to be a strictly SONY produced project, not jointly with Marvel Studios. Also meaning Spider-Man would not factor into any part of this story or ‘Venom-verse’ if you will. 

I am.. Slightly worried about this. I am intrigued. But worried. The comic book puriest in me says, “The Fuck kind of bull shit is this?! You cant have Venom without Spider-Man!” on the other side of that coin, the movie fan says, “It could be a HUGE mistake, but worth trying. Lets see how it goes.” 

So, I’m torn. We all know the true origin of Venom, 

Eddie Brock was (and is again) the one true Venom. He spins right out of the pages of Spider-Man. Its hard to picture one without the other. 

However, Eddie was not the only Venom. SONY could just as easily make an AGENT VENOM film..

Flash Thompson loses both his legs in battle during a war. Comes home and gets joined to the venom symbiot. That could work. Flash Thompson doesnt have to be exactly tied to Spider-Man because he’s such a secondary character. A historic and important character.. But still secondary non the less. 

 It has the slightest of chances of working. And if it does GREAT! But it also has the potential for failing miserably! Like Spider-Man 3 Venom did..

It’s 50/50 at this point. What does really kinda intrigues me though.. It will (probably) be rated R.. (probably). 
That could work! Venom is that kind of character. That means that if a sequel comes.. Carnage is not far behind..

And Carnage can not be in a live action film and be toned down to a PG/ PG13 version. He has to be full of blood and gore! And the more i think of it.. The more im sold on the idea of a separate Spider-Verse. 

Lets move on to the ladies..

BLACK CAT and SILVER SABLE!

Ones a world class thief, the other a world class mercenary for hire.. Out of these two film ideas, Venom and this one.. I am less torn on this one.. If done right.. This could be pretty darn cool. Felica Hardy is much like Flash Thompson, key character in Spider-Man history.. But completely secondary! She doesnt HAVE to be tied to Spider-Man in order for her character to shine. 

Silver Sable is such a low teir character.. They could just about do anything with her. Just as long as they stay true to certain character traits, just to apease us fans. 

I could see something along the lines of a more badass version of Rush Hour, 48 Hours, and Lethal Weapon.. But with Kick ass ladies in the drivers seat! 

If they have the right story. The right people behind it.. This could be really fucking awesome. 

Venom can go either way depending on the story and the people behind it. SS/BC could do the same, but with a lot less pressure on its shoulders as Venom does. Im interested. Im on board.. 

Lets see what you got SONY!

What do you folks think? Are you excited? Pissed? Dont give a shit? Let me know. Leave a comment. Follow/Subscribe. Thx for reading..

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

MY THOUGHTS ON.. “THOR: RAGNAROK”

So, early Wednesday afternoon Entertainment Weekly and Marvel Studios reveled thier exclusive first look at “THOR: RAGANROK” set to open later this year. 

First, lets take a look at the early snap shots we have..

Pretty fucking cool if you ask me.

Now! On to ‘My Thoughts..’ part of this article..

First of all.. Lets go back to last month.. When Marvel Studios released a video for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. In the video was a shot of some concept art of Thor and Rocket Racoon..

But when you take a good look at Thor’s hand, 

He’s not holding Mjilnor! I dont think Thor is leaving Ragnarok with Mjilnor.. Granted.. This is just Concept art. They could have changed this before, during and after the filming of Thor 3. I just find this to be very very intriguing. 

These other Concept pieces were released before the EW photos. 

This one of Hela looked Absouloutly awesome.. And the real life Hela.. Looks badass! 

Cate Blanchett looks phenomenal. Her hair and costume kinda resembles Loki’s look.. I wonder if they will have her be Loki’s daughter in the MCU. If not, thats cool. 

Thor’s Look:

Gladiator Thor looks epic! 

The Grandmaster..

I wanted him to be blue!.. My very first thought.. “Why is he not Blue!?!” 

Grandmaster is supposed to be BLUE DAMN IT! 

But.. In retrospect, after that fact passed me.. I remembered, Grandmaster and The Collecter are Brothers.. And this is how Collecter looks in the MCU..

SOooo! There you have it. It makes sence now. May not be thrilled that Marvel didnt go blue.. But whateves.

Now. Comes the part.. Where i speculate my ass off, as to what the plot could be.

At the end of ‘AGE OF ULTRON’ Hulk was sailing away in the quinjet by his lonesome..

Its then, i believe Either Hela, takes him for a grand scheme that she has planned. OR Grandmaster gets his mitts on Hulk for his Gladitorial games on Sakkar. (There will be no Red King in this version of the planet hulk story) Meanwhile, nefarious things are amis in asgard as Thor searches for the truth about the infinity stones. Only to discover Loki’s latest treachery. Forcing the two of them return to earth and search for Odin. With the help of Sorcerer Supreme, Dr. Strange.

During said search, they find Odin in the streets of New York like so..

Some shit goes down and Hela drops in..

 in the battle, Thor looses Mjilnor and is thrusted to the planet Sakkar, where hes forced to battle for his freedom. Only to discover his Friend Dr. Banner and Hulk is trapped there as well. 

Along with a new ally, Valkyrie 

They fight thier way out of Grandmaster’s arena. Unbeknownst to them, Grandmaster and Hela and probably Loki 

Are playing a much more deeper and dangerous game. 

Hela or Surtur 

will most likely possess the Soul Gem. A prize the Grandmaster hopes to attain. 
My guess is.. By the end, it would be revealed that Grandmaster was playing more then 1 game, and by the end of it, loses to Thanos. Giving him either the Infinity Stone his brother The Collecter had (The Ether) or the Soul Stone that he wins from Hela! 

I pray that the scene has Grandmaster telling Thanos, “I know what you are Planning to do with these Stones, Mad Titan. And i must warn you.. You are playing  a most dangerous game..” (PLEASE! Make that happen Marvel!) 

Anywhoo.. I think I have droned on long enough.. These pictures have me even more hyped for Thor 3! I have a lot of high hopes for this installment of the Thor Franchise! 

And before i go.. One honest to goodness prediction, if it doesnt happen I’ll be dissapointed.. BUT! I honestly think.. We wont know until the movies release.. But i think.. Thor: Ragnarok is going to introduce..

Beta Ray Bill. If in fact Thor loses Mjilnor in this movie. Bill is the clear logical choice to be the one to weild the Hammer. 

What do YOU folks think? What do these photos make you feel or think about the next Thor film? Please leave your comments below. Leave a like. Share. Follow. Subscribe.. ANYTHING DAMN IT! Thx for reading folks..

Until next time.. Peace out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!: “LOGAN”(No Spoilers)

Greetings and salutations, Ladies and Gentelnerds! And welcome to another addition of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!”

Today’s Movie (if it isnt obvious..) 

“LOGAN” 

THE STORY: 

James Howlett (aka: Logan) has been serving out his years as a Limo Driver for hire down in the southwest. His days as an X-Man long gone and far in the past. After a mysterious event took out the X-Men, all that is left, is him and a sickly and aged Professor Xavier. Mutants are all but extenict. Logans quiet life is turned upside down when a young girl with the same powers as his, shows up

with a band of secret government soldiers, known as “The Revers” on her tail. 

Logan reluctantly comes to the girls aid. Only to discover her shocking history and what it means for his future.

Very, very.. VERY loosely based on the hit graphic novel “Old Man Logan” 

By Mark Millar and Steve Mcniven. The only similaritys are Logan, it takes place in the future and theres a road trip.. Literally.. Thats all that has this film resembeling the comic. But you know what.. It does not matter.

“LOGAN” is a beautiful movie. It transcends beyond a comic book film. Its a movie about a man coming to grips with himself. Past, Present and Future. After so many years of physical and mental abuse, from himself and outside forces, Logan learns what it means.. To be human. To feel, Happy.. To feel Love. The story, is short for the films 2 hr run time. But it is very simple and to the point. James Mangold directed a masterpiece of a film. He also wrote the story and co-wrote the screenplay. Which was brilliant. 

THE CAST: 

First and foremost.. Dafne Keen, stole the Mother Fucking Show! 

Her X-23 was probably the best part of the movie. Besides Hugh Jackman, She was.. Phenomenal. She literally stole every frame she was in. As i did some research as i began to write this review. It turns out, this is the young ladys very first film debut.. And what a debut! She had a previous role on a tv series called “Refugees”. But Logan is her first feature film and she Rocked it.

It sucks that this is Hugh Jackmans final turn as Wolverine. But he really brought his A game for this.. And thats saying something. Cause everytime he puts on those claws, he is on point. Every Time. But, somehow.. This felt different. His performance was.. Heavier, of you will. He reall capped it all off pefectly and i Hate to see him go. I really do. 

Patrick Stewart’s Xavier is as always, wonderful and yet.. Extremely differnt. I’ve never heard Xavier drop so many F bombs in my entire life. And im happy i got to experience it. This also being Stewarts last go around as Xavier.. It was a beautiful, yet heartbreaking send off for him and the character. 

THE POSITIVES: 

Direction. Acting. Story. Cinematography.. Everything was beautifully done. Honestly.. Its near perfection. 

THE NEGATIVES: 

The fact that it is not in any continuity to any of the previous films at all, is not a negative. What, IS a negative for me.. I would have loved to have seen the Continuity it would have sprang from. (if that makes any sense) I wish more of the other movies were within this time frame.

 For a 2hr 17 min film.. I wanted more. It left me wanting more. Not that it doesnt end well.. I just didnt want it to end, i guess? I feel like more could have been added in the begining, middle and end. I feel like, there might have been more material left on the editing floor and i hope we get a longer cut on the DVD release (hopefully).

 There could have been more.. Bonding time for X23 and Logan. Or i would have at least appreciated a little more togetherness. 

A flashback of (SPOILERS) when (Spoiler) reveals (Spoiler) before hes (Spoiler) by (Spoiler) Wow.. Didnt think i could pull that off.. Now! Here’s the trick. If you have seen the film, and can guess what the fuck im talking about. Please feel free to hit me up with the answer and your thoughts.

OVERALL: 

“LOGAN” is in fact, the “The Dark Knight” of the X-Men franchise of Movies (and it only took them 8 movies and 20 some odd years to get it done.) An honest to goodness Masterpiece from start to finish. It grabs you by the neck on a coaster ride of emotions, and doesnt let you go until the very end.. And when its over.. You wish you never stopped. You will laugh. You will cry. You will be happy. You will be sad. And then, when all is said and done, You Will Be Greatful. I give “LOGAN” a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 9/10 (probably my higest score to date.) You have to see this. 

Thank you all so much for reading and before I go.. I just want to send a message to James Mangold and the People at 20th Century Fox.. Although i know they may never read this.. “Please, Re release Logan around Oscar voting season later this year, in Black and White. Have Hugh Jackman up for best actor, Patrick Stewart best Supporting, Dafne Keen Best Supporting Actress( or best Lead is fine) and Logan for Best Picture and Best screenplay and best cinematography and yourself for Best Director. This Movie.. Truly deserves such recognition. And also.. Thank You! Thank you for such a beautiful and wonderful movie experiance.”

Until Next Time Folks… Peace Out!
